to climb all the Wainwrights by Easter 2007 - but in order to get the
money raised to the GNAAS as soon as possible we planned on
finishing by the end of 2006. In general, we would be using
Marshall's book "Walking the Wainwrights" to navigate around many of
the peaks we were not already familiar with, but the detailed routes
would depend on lots of variables which would only become clear nearer
the date. Stuart's book defines some 36 walks to cover the 214
peaks, which meant about one walk a week to meet the deadline of
the end of 2006 - or more than that taking into account trips abroad
during that period (we are going to watch a couple of Ashes Test
matches in Australia late in the year!).
As things turned out (see the progress links)
we managed all 214 fells within 6 months. I thought that was
quite good until I heard about this lady who lives in Borrowdale who
has done the Wainwrights SEVEN times in two years!
